Ancient IBM Thinkpad 2603 dropped off at my office today

A customer of mine came by the office today and dropped off this ancient laptop, an IBM Thinkpad 2603. I tried to find specs on it to no avail. The screen is about 7.5 inches by 4.5 inches. Cool IBM Netbook, huh? I was able to find one on Ebay for 99 cents. Check out the pictures of the 2603 below:

    I got one of those and could figure out what model it is until i type the number as “2603 images” on google and it brought me straight here. It is true its an ancient one huh! I’m trying to find a AC power charger for this one why i’m trying to figure out what model first!

    I don’t have a power adaptor for this one either. Would be interesting to see if it worked. Oh Well. Ebay might work.
